PAST PROJECTS

FUND FOR INNOVATIVE TRAINING:

In 2009, KADO joined hands with Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) to initiate a project called “Enhancing Employability of Marginalized Segments in GB through IT” which was implemented with the financial assistance of the TVET Reform Support Program as part of its Fund for Innovative Training (FIT) component.

I-Tech Training Centers

With the paradigm shift, the opportunities for people with expertise in Information Technology have never been greater. Through this project, KADO established modern i-Tech training centers in eight locations (including one mobile unit) in G-B. These centers provided skill-based short training in information technology, freelancing, and alternate energy solution for youth between the age limit of 18 to 38 years and marginalized segments of the society (female, physically challenged, ultra-poor, and disaster-affected).

challenges

Due to the remoteness and non-availability of Internet service at several locations in GB, we are providing fast and reliable Internet connectivity to the public through satellite internet downlink (VSAT) in our centers.Our i-Tech training centers are powered by renewable/alternative energy sources, such as solar power and hydroelectricity, and power-efficient IT equipment

KADO initiated a project in collaboration with the Gilgit-Baltistan Gov to establish 36 IT Labs inside government-owned schools across GB to enhance the IT skills of 12,000 young female students. As part of the project, 12,000 young females were trained in various IT-related skills to empower women in the region by enhancing their capacities in digital literacy. The project went on for 06 years.
